5 a.m. Friday morning: I wake up shivering. Why is it so cold in my house? Thermostat is on. Power’s on. Heater’s making noise. What’s up?
Oh no. I try to start the stove—no dice. I run outside to check and confirm my fears. I am completely and totally out of propane.
It is now 6 a.m. and T-minus four hours until the snow is scheduled to start.
